Oita Trinita visits local events, schools and facilities, and carries out activities to walk with the community with the goal of making the citizens of the prefecture proud of being a “club in the city”.
Through this activity, we will further deepen the cooperation of “Trinity”, which is the origin of Oita Trinita, and “Contribute to the vitality of Oita through soccer”, which is the club philosophy, and become “the best club in Japan that is closely related to the community” that is loved by everyone. I’m trying to be.

The team was formerly known as ita Trinity when it was established in 1994. It went on to compete in the ita Prefectural League and the Kyushu League before finishing as the runner-up in the 1996 National League. This resulted in the club being promoted to the JFL. Concerns over possible infringement of copyright led to the rebranding of the nightclub as Trinita in 1999.

The next year, the team competed in the J.League Division 2, which is the second-highest division in Japanese football (the J2 League was renamed to its current name in 2015). The club finished in third place. Additionally, the team finished in third place in the year 2000, and despite being in the running for promotion up until the very last game of the season in 2001, the club ultimately finished in sixth place.

The next season, the team won the J.League Division 2 title, which ultimately led to its elevation to the top-tier Division 1 competition. The team earned its first major title since Yawata Steel SC shared the 1964 Emperor’s Cup by taking home the J.League Cup in 2008. This accomplishment came in the year 2008.

The club finished 2009 with their worst-ever results in their seven-year history in the top flight, including 14 straight losses in league matches, which is the current worst record in the J.League since the golden goal system was eliminated. This is the worst record in the J.League since the golden goal system was eliminated. The club even dismissed the manager who led them to victory in the cup competition in the middle of July.

Although the club would have faced relegation regardless due to outstanding loans from the JFL’s emergency fund, the club’s relegation was confirmed on October 25 after they were held to a 1–1 draw by ten-man Kyoto Sanga F.C. League rules prohibit clubs with such loans from participating in the top flight. The club’s relegation was confirmed despite the fact that they would have faced relegation anyway.

Oita Trinita finished the 2012 J.League Division 2 season in sixth place, which allowed the club to qualify for the promotion playoffs in the first year of its introduction into Japan’s second flight. Additionally, the club had repaid all of its emergency loans by October of that same year, which allowed it to qualify for the promotion playoffs. Oita Trinita earned promotion to 2013 J.League Division 1 by defeating Kyoto Sanga F.C. 4–0 in the semi-final and JEF United Ichihara Chiba 1–0 in the final.

As a result, Oita Trinita returned to the top flight after a hiatus of five years. This time around, on the other hand, their stint in the top division was limited to just one season. They became the first major title winner to be demoted to the third tier after suffering a loss in the promotion playoffs to Machida Zelvia on December 6, 2015, which resulted in them being relegated to the J3 League. This led to their further demotion. After winning the J3 League championship in 2016, the club was promptly given promotion back to the J2 League.
